As we're gear up for our next Green Dinner on December 6th, I'd like to share this story from the Post -- it follows Arlington resident Peter Owens from his office in DC to his home near Court House, almost a 6 mile/2 hour walk -- which got me thinking about our discussion topic: space.
How different is our experience of surrounding spaces if it's through a walk versus in a car?
I always forget how "small" DC is: from my apartment in Arlington, it's a 4.3 mile walk to GWU. That sounds doable (walking seems so much less intimidating than biking for some reason). My commute to work (all in Arlington) would be a little more than 4 miles as well...doesn't seem so bad, maybe I'll try it come spring :) Plus Google Maps now does walking directions!
